Rookie of the Year (1993)

Rookie of the Year is a heartwarming sports film released in 1993 that resonated with audiences of all ages. Directed by Daniel Stern, known for his role in Home Alone, the movie follows the story of 12-year-old Henry Rowengartner, brilliantly played by Thomas Ian Nicholas.

After an accident, Henry discovers an extraordinary pitching talent that propels him into the major leagues as a star pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. The film is a rollercoaster of emotions as Henry struggles to balance his newfound fame with the challenges of being a kid. Along the way, he forms enduring friendships and learns valuable life lessons.

The movie features an impressive ensemble cast, including Gary Busey portraying the eccentric Cubs pitcher Chet Steadman, and Albert Hall as the charismatic pitching coach. Daniel Stern himself also makes an appearance as the Cubs' play-by-play announcer.

Relive the magic of Rookie of the Year by downloading and playing the unforgettable sounds that accompany the movie. Whether it's the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, or the joyous celebration of triumph, these sounds will transport you back to the inspiration and excitement of this classic sports film.

And with that, Rowengartner extends the Cubs to their longest winning streak this season two.
Ball! 3 0!
Baseball is 162 grueling games played in a more than a dozen cities. Now on the field, we conserve our energy.
Big game like this, I gotta go with experience. Even if it is you.
Bleacher rules you can't keep a home run hit by the other team.
Bottom nine. Two out. One on. Full count.
But there's other things I wanna do first.
By the way, you're fined $500 for showing up late to practice.
C'mon, Henry!
Call strikes! Who cares how short he is. Let's go.
Camry Hero told me that Becky Freiger doesn't think you're very ugly.
Can you believe this?
Carson! Carson! We've all seen these publicity stunts before. How do we not know Henry is just here to sell tickets?
Cha ching, Jack.
Ched Steadman? I am so sick of hearing about Ched Steadman.
Ched Steadman? Unbelievable! Mr. Steadman! Can I have your autograph? Could you sign it Rocket?

David Rosenthal starts Hebrew school this week.
DeBrobe, babe. How about you?
Do me a favor. Don't call me Rocket.
Don't forget that.
Don't listen to him, Hank, he's a loser!
Don't worry about it. I mean, that kid's a dork anyways.
Don't worry about it. It'll be fine. They're just girls.
Don't you walk away from me when I'm talking to you! You show me some respect!
Excuse me ladies.
Excuse me. Thank you.
Float it.
For the whole shootin' match. This is for all the marbles. The division champions. The loser goes home a loser.
Forget it guys! She doesn't like me! And besides, she's not that hot.
Foul ball.
From the top, everybody. And more smoke!
Get dressed, I'm taking you home.
Get it, get it!
Go, go, go.
Good game yesterday. [laughter]
Goodman gets a standup double! It cuts the coupling to one! Two to one, Cubs!
Gosh Henry! You could play for the Cubs!
Hang on, hey! Coming through! [laughter]
Have fun!
He doesn't slow dance. Ow!
He got him, he got him! Two away!
He throws a strike for the first time in his professional career!
He's a good kid. He must have a heck of a mom.
He's got no strike zone!
He's gotta put me in! It's either me or Windemere!
He's half mine!
He's moving too fast!
He's moving too fast!
He's throwing BB's today, man.
Heh? Huh! Come on!
Henry is so cute!
Henry, I'm sorry. I just wanted you to have someone you could look up to.
Henry, this is Salmart Miller, the manager of the Chicago Cubs. [gasp]
Henry! [foreign language]
Henry! I love you!
Hey come on, kid, throw the heat!
Hey kid. You got nothing. I know it. And you know it.
Hey pitcher! You got something hanging out of your nose!
Hey, hey!
Hey, not so fast!
Hey, pitcher! [singing] Pitcher, pitcher, pitcher!
Hey! Forgot my lucky seeds.
Hey! Rowengartner! You suck!
Hey! Rowengartner! You suck!
Hey! Wait, wait.
Hey! You see that kid? I never doubted him for a minute! Hey! Way to go, Rottle mocker!
Hi guys!
Hi Henry!
Hot dogs. Get your hot dogs. Get em hot.
Hot ice. That's right, hot ice! I heat up the ice cubes! It's the best of both worlds!
How much longer is this gonna take?
Huh? I'm sorry! I didn't mean it! My tendons! They're too tight!
Huh? Oh!
Hustle on into the tunnel, and I don't wanna hear about no asthma neither!
I can't believe he fell for that.
I can't believe it. I've been waiting for my whole life to say those words. 'Cause I've said the words before but
I can't believe they're letting him play!
I do.
I double dare you.
I got it!
I gotta be out of my mind.
I guess it already did.
I hate you!
I just figured out why the Cubs lose every year. They got more talent in the stand than they do in the field. Who threw that?
I mean, I gotta go. Bye.
I need you to be more sexy.
I think this is gonna be THE season for the Cubs.
I, I, uh... I think what's happened here is that those tendons have healed, uh, a little tight.
I'll be right back.
I'll do it.
I'm fine. Fine.
I'm Henry Rowengartner! I'm the new pitcher!
I'm in? I'm in?
I'm sorry, what was that last line again? If it's irresistably, hypothetically, and logically Henry. Henry.
I'm your worst nightmare.
If you can get Mary to sign the contract.
In fact, your mother probably doesn't know who your father is! Your father's some guy who left town!
Is that play legal?
Is this gonna take much longer?
It appears nothing can stop Rowengartner now.
It was me.
It's all free.
It's yours! It's yours!
Just look at her sipping that milk.
Just step in the box, son. Step up to the plate.
Keep it up, big guy.
Let me show you how that's done, alright?
Let me show you how to enjoy all the lights and the bells and the whistles. And remember now...
Let's go back to our dull lives in search for meaning.
Let's go kid! Where's your mom sitting? This one's for mommy! Mommy!
Let's go, Suarez.
Let's just work on the boat.
Let's play some ball! Let's play some ball! Man!
Like this?
Listen up! Alright now. This is the big one. Chet's on the hill. Back him up. Play hard. Let's go.
Little bit of competition, huh?
Little help. Little help now.
Look. One more.
Milk's done that body good.
Mom? It was you?
Mom. There's something we gotta talk about.
Nice guy.
No. I mean I'm done. I belt the arm go.
Not that hot? She's that!
Now the three week anniversary is the, um... That's the necklace anniversary.
Now, I wrap it up in my vomit bag, I take it back to the hotel, put it on ice, and in the morning, voila! Breakfast!
Now, I'll tell you what I want! You're gonna take a lot of sweat! But eventually, I'm gonna mold you into one of the greatest 12 year olds
Oh boy.
Oh boy.
Oh boy. [knocks]
Oh god. What do I do?
Oh jeez.
Oh my god, it's Billy Frick!
Oh my god.
Oh no, I promise we'll be there. Thank you. Thanks.
Oh no!
Oh no.
Oh no. It's gone!
Oh, Jack! Uh... (laughs)
Oh, kid, please! Get us through this inning, and I'll never ask you for anything else for as long as I live!
Oh, uh... No, that was just spec, Uncle Bob. Nothing final.
Oh! [heavy breathing]
Oh! What a lucky stab.
Okay, Deezer, let 'er rip! Throw in the chedder! Come on, right in the kitchen!
Okay, uh, honey? In bed by 8:30 and do all your homework.
Okay. Henry.
Okay. Here goes! [rubber band sounds]
Okay. You got too big on me.
One more.
Ooh! That stings!
Ooh. Third time's a charm. Let the big dog eat!
Pitcher, pitcher, pitcher! [singing] Pitcher's got a big butt!
Play ball.
Play ball.
Punctuality, Henry. Without it, time stands still.
Put it in my wheelhouse.
Raven booser. Your locker's over here.
Richard's calling for the attention of Wock! Again!
Right, okay. Thank you!
Rosen burger. Warm up. You're going in.
Rowengartner makes the grab! Unbelievable!
Rowengartner takes a long look at the runner at second.
Rowengartner throws a homer, hits a man, throws a wild pitch, and still manage to get the save, and the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets 5 to 4.
Rulinbruter! Come on!
Salmart Miller, right? Jack Bradfield. I am a huge, huge fan. Come here Henry.
See what I did there? Huh? You see that? Alright. Now. Give me the good stuff.
See ya!
September in Chevaz Ravine, Los Angeles, California. Our beloved Cubbies are just three games behind the New York Mets, with 15 games left to play.
Shall we?
Show em what you got, kid.
Slide, slide!
So, what are we gonna talk about?
So, you're gonna sit out the rest of the season on the bench, and then we're releasing you.
So? Maybe you're not cut out to be an outfielder.
Somebody just threw a frozen rope from the bleachers to home point! That's gotta be 435 feet.
Sometimes, you just gotta put the petal to the metal and just... live the fantasy! Rock and roll!
Soon as I take care of a little business.
Steadman is really laboring. One run is in. And after the wild pitch Goodman is on third with two away.
